Re: Special Weather Statement for Ontario

In South and SW Ontario including the GTA, temps will be above freezing overnight Sunday, staying above most of Monday.

This will be an all rain event for those areas, though there is a chance of mixed precip farther north.

Not really. The only place where it will be a 100% all-rain event is extreme southwestern Ontario and the Niagara Peninsula. The freezing rain is going to occur far further south than you would lead others to believe.

No, really. As of 10 PM, it's at freezing or above everywhere in Southern Ontario from the GTA West, and from the 401 South, including Toronto (+2), Burlington (+2), Hamilton (+1). Precip. has not started in any of these areas yet. The surface temp needs to be slightly below freezing for freezing rain to adhere.

As I said, an all-rain event in those areas, in addition to SW Ontario where it's been raining lightly for the past couple of hours.

EC disagreed with you enough to issue Freezing Rain Warnings for all those areas that you said would be all-rain. I tend to think they know more about this particular subject than you ever will. Meh.

No freezing rain was reported in the areas that I posted about. Unsurprising since the temperature was at for above freezing.

As it turns out, the EC forecast was incorrect for those areas, though it was appropriate to err on the side of caution when issuing warnings.

Freezing Rain warnings were issued for Elgin County, Oxford County, Middlesex County and Norfolk County at 8PM last night. Freezing rain warnings were also in effect for parts of the GTA. Those counties I just mentioned are in Southwestern Ontario, unless of course the map you are looking at is different than the one everyone else uses.

Like I said, I have every reason to believe they know more about both the forecasting of weather (and evidently even geography) than you do.

There was still sufficient chance of it happening overnight for EC to issue a warning, though. I was actually quite surprised that it extended as far south as it did.

They didn't issue a warning for Toronto and the west-end of the GTA, just an SWS.

I didn't say EC was wrong to issue the warning, I'm saying the freezing rain didn't happen in the entire geographic area covered by the warnings. Temps were above freezing from a line extending South from just North of the 401, and SW all the way to Windsor.. Areas North of that line may have experienced mixed precip, as I posted originally.

There was some freezing rain to some extent in Mississauga because the roads were iced this morning on the way into work. Some poor lady in front of me lost control when stopping at an intersection. Luckily everyone was on the ball and she just spun into the intersection without hitting anyone.
